Default Rocky Mountain photo essay

Went on a two week trip to the Rockies this summer,and really enjoyed a lot of camping,hiking,and running.My daughter and I spent plenty of time
taking photos,and so I thought I'd share a few.Most of the shots speak for themselves.What a country we live in!

Nice pics - I definitely recognize "skyladder" on Andromeda, and, of course, the Athabasca Glacier - eater of the unwary hiker.

Awesome adventure! I went to the Rockies two summers in a row on week-long camping trips some years back. The first year we saw Mt. Robson and the northern Rockies area. The second year, we visited a lot more of western Alberta and southern BC. Great fun, especially when you're younger. Very nice pics, Mick!

Awesome! The second waterfall picture looks so familiar, it's almost like I have either been there or pictured going there... odd. Anyway, I'm gonna try to scroll through some old photo albums and find a place to scan a few pics to post. Mick, do you have a planned route for this time? If you've never been there, visit Waterton Lakes National Park in south-western Alberta; it was one of my favourite places to be and I got to stay for 3 days. If you have, then you know what I'm talking about. [8D]

The second waterfall pic is from Johnston Canyon near Castle Mountain on the Bow Valley Parkway,Backpacker.Have been to Waterton several times too.I really savoured camping there-the blowing winds,red rock formations,plenty of wildlife-it is a totally cool place and my daughter insists we are going again on next summer's trip...Seawall,the answer to your question is very close-about 30 ft or so.I took it on Maligne Lake Road near Jasper.By the way,if you are ever there,be on the road no later than 7 am and take your time exploring-the area is teeming with wildlife.If I had it to do again,I might consider doing it on my mountain bike.... Mick
